6 Oklahoma City at 3 Portland -2
The Thunder come into Portland looking to even up the series after dropping their first game. Portland came out on fire in the first game, hitting 7 three pointers to open the first quarter up 14 points 39-25. The Blazers were only able to hit just 4 more the rest of the game. The Thunder struggled to get their shots going, shooting under 40% from the field, and only 15% from long range. Russell Westbrook did manage to get a triple double while trying to bring his team back from there slow start and managed to get within 1 point with 2:44 left in the game, but was unable to as they fell to the Blazers 104-99. This was the first time the Thunder had fell to the Blazers all season, as they swept the season series vs Portland. Paul George has been playing through a shoulder injury, but looked to be moving around just fine last game. He has recently came out and said his shoulder is now pain free, which could be bad news for Portland as he was averaging 2.6 less points per game since the injury happened. Alot of pressure and scoring will be put on the back of Lillard to keep the scoring up with the loss of Nurkic this season. The Thunder need to come out strong this game and not allow another huge start from Portland and they should be able to even this series out. Russell Westbrook and Paul George will lead the Thunder back to OKC with the series tied up!
